This is definitely a GOOD seat. You can travel with your love without a third traveler around. Also, as the curve of the airplane, this seat has a significantly larger leg room on the left.
This seat is clearly colored "red" as it is located to about 30% in the aisle walkway. So all people basically need to walk around you, frequently bumping into your left elbow.
Main point here is that this area of the plane is not bothered by the lavatories, in fact they are so quiet you can't even here them! There are IFEs at every seat, and there is AC and USB power at each seat. The AC ports are located below your seat. The seat was awesome and had a little legrest too, which is good since your can rest your legs, but also blocks your legroom. I'd suggest snagging a window seat in this section of the plane as there is a little space for space on the sides and you can access the aisle easily.
The arm rest is not liftable. There is a small table in the arm rest, and the usual tray table on the front (as per normal). The windows are not on every 'panel' for this part of the cabin. The side alternates between no-window, and window. Each seat kind of strides 2 'panels'.
There is on demand television in every seat in economy class.
The seats are B/E Aerospace's Diamond, so it can turn into a flat bed 180 degree.
I flew on this plane from New York to Beijing, and the seat was pretty good. In the first 3 rows, of the upper deck business class, you get a lot more privacy, than in the rows 83-87. Food was great, the entertainment screen was responsive for most of the flight (until before landing), and the seat looked pretty new, aside from one compartment, which had not been cleaned in ages! The pilot, was very experienced, and made a very smooth landing, during some quite unpleasant turbulence (Just the last 20 minutes of the flight). I would fly in this seat again.
I was on this flight from JFK-PEK and returning, and I was thoroughly pleased with the economy class on Air China's 747-8. The seat was comfortable and easy to fall asleep in (important on a 14 hour trip), and the legroom and seat width were fine. The seat back IFE was really nice and provided a variety of movies and TV shows in English and Chinese, and despite having two massive engines right outside of the window the flight was relatively quiet. Overall I was satisfied with the product and would fly this aircraft with Air China again.
Seat 31J and 31C have way more legrooms than other economy and premier economy seats as these two seats face the pathway in front directly. However, for the same reason, other passengers waiting for the lavatory may bump into these two seats. In addition, all seats on this aircraft have AVOD inflight entertainment systems.
